Chefe Daniel – Flavours of Portugal

We had made a mental note to stop by this neat looking little Portuguese place on Kingsway after seeing it while driving through the neighborhood.  There was no info about it online when we checked so we figured it must be new (apparently it’s been there for a while under a different name before being […]

Anniversary…Secrets…Chambar…Hole digging…..

Yep.  Hitman’s really done it this time.  He’s dug himself into a massive hole and frankly, I don’t think he’s gonna be able to get out of it. How could you be so careless???  Did you think of the consequences???  Apparently not! Geez you’ve done such a tremendous job on our first anniversary how are […]

Let’s Go For Dinner:

Update Aug 3, 2013: This restaurant is now closed. It has been a while since I’ve been to  I was first introduced to this restaurant when they held a foodie night early last year.  I had a good impression of the place but never got the chance to go back until now, as my […]

Koon Bo Restaurant 冠寶

Koon Bo is one of those restaurants that if you don’t know about it, you would never think to go there.  After all, the location pretty much sucks, the parking sucks, the decor sucks, the waiting area sucks, you get the drift.  So why is it so popular?  Of course it’s the food.  It’s not […]

Tropika 星馬印 @ Aberdeen Centre

Update Nov 14, 2013: This restaurant has moved from the location indicated in this post. Malaysian food has always served me well.  I like the seasoning and the spiciness that comes with most of its dishes.  The Tom Yum Gong soup has an unbelievably great flavor that keeps me coming back to it.  We decided […]

Red Star Seafood Restaurant 鴻星

I’ve had these pictures for quite a while…probably a month or more. For that amount of time, it’s a miracle that Red Star is still operating. Anyways, this is another dim sum post. As the visit was quite some time ago, I’ve since went again and so there will be pictures from both visits. Both […]

Dine-out Vancouver 2009: Granville Room

I’ll be leaving for a South American cruise on Saturday, meaning I’ll miss the bulk of Dine-out Vancouver.  Since I’ll also be missing a friend’s birthday during that time, I quickly organized a dinner together to take advantage of Dine-out. A friend wanted to try a restaurant from the $18 menu.  I picked Granville Room […]

Northern Delicacy 客滿庭

Update: Northern Delicacy is now closed. We’ve been to Northern Delicacy numerous times.  It is located in Aberdeen Centre.  Did you know that on some maps this area is called “Golden Village”? It was a Monday.  I thought the mall would be relatively quiet.  Nope.  I forgot that is was THANKSGIVING MONDAY.  One thing I […]
